. with china expanding and india blooming, not to mention the splendid addition to t barn to the family starbucks has a terrific story to tell and they can tell it. may be a one off situation. the business of fried chicken, it's cool there in china. i can't draw any conclusion. plus it's worth pointing out the united states lately was a disappointment. all that said, yum is a remarkable company. my inclination would be to hold onto it no matter what. if you really need to get out of it maybe at a higher price. perhaps at next thursday's analyst meeting. for yum in general it's worth pointing out that the restaurant stocks have become quite inhospitable of late. with everyone from mcdonald's and cracker barrel and chipotle disappointing the street, my takeaway please don't draw conclusion that china's back sliding. we have way too much evidence to the contrary. just conclude that something's awry right now in china for yum, for the colonel. and just specific to him. and that not too long from now chairman ceo david novak will fix it so ultimately there will be better times ahead for yum.

to russia and they're looking at markets like india. but they've not given up on europe, which will remain its key engine for growth. the european story is more nuanced than the eurozone crisis growth headlines would suggest. in fact, solaris has picked up new business in finland and belgium and will do record sales in spain this year. solaris management considers the company as much european as it is polish and believes the block is strongest staying together. so if the eurozone were a bus, say, none of the passengers should be forced to leave before the ultimate destination is reached. just setting aside for a moment the issue of trade into germany, the polish economy is clipping along at about 2.4% this year. it's expected to slow into next year. so what exactly is the central bank going to do to offset some of that weakness in domestic demand. i'm very pleased to have with me yang, on the committee, and also an academic economist. thank you for joining us. the central bank has been criticized by some for not cutting sooner and more aggressively. and the key policy rate still sits at 4.
